Dave do you have a death for parents George and Emma. Maybe something might show up on Elizabeth in their death notices if they had one.

Well that idea went down the drain :rolleyes:
Her notice gives nothing up neither.


The Sydney Morning Herald
Friday 20 December 1907

WILLIAMS.-December 19, 1907, at her late residence,
Orchard-road, Chatswood, Emma, beloved wife of George Williams, in her 65th year.



The cemetery has her date of death as 09 Dec 1907. I think it should be the 19 Dec and not the 9th.

Thanks, gibbo. :) Yes, looks like should be 19.

I can't say if there was more than one notice for George or not. Probably over a year ago when I was searching for them.

Elizabeth had 3 siblings:


Death 17980/1944 SALMON ANNIE MARIE - GEORGE - EMMA - MANLY

Oh. We have a MILLER and a MILLAR marriage. It's not the MILLAR - post #1.

Is that possible? George was born abt 1872 and marriage was 1902. :eek:

Births
9862/1903 WILLIAMS JESSIE M - GEORGE - ELIZABETH - ASHFIELD
21247/1906 WILLIAMS ELEANOR PRICE - GEORGE - ELIZABETH JARVIS - ASHFIELD

Emma's maiden name was PRICE so daughter got grandmother's name as middle name.


Deaths
70/1911 WILLIAMS ELIZABETH J MICHAEL ANASTASIA SYDNEY
11017/1911 WILLIAMS ELIZABETH J JAMES MARY MOREE
6210/1912 WILLIAMS ELIZABETH J NICHOLAS ELIZABETH HURSTVILLE
15036/1933 WILLIAMS ELIZABETH S J JAMES EUPHEMIA OBERON
14739/1932 WILLIAMS ELIZABETH J THOMAS H DORIS NEWCASTLE


Looking for a death 1906-1981 for Elizabeth (no J) with father = Richard turns up no hits.

:2fun: OK.

I can see no death for that Elizabeth as SHERRIFF and I can see no other marriage for her so can't rule her out apart from age.

Why can't I rule her out? :2fun:
